Seeking information on three families: ZEILINGOLD, WILENSKY, and RASHBAUM #poland

goldtenor@...
 

I am writing to see if anyone is familiar with these three families of my
ancestors who all lived in Bialystok:

1) ZEILINGOLD - My great grandfather was Solomon Zeilingold. He was born in
1858 in Pinsk and married Nechama Chotz >from Brest Litovsk. They had 11
children, four of whom I know nothing, five who were born in Brest Litovsk:
Arthur, Peter, Mandel, Jacob, and Abraham, and then moved to Bialystok in
the early 1890s where they had their final two children: Rose and Aaron
(Harry, who was my grandfather). The oldest sons left Bialystok in 1899
and traveled alone to New York. The rest of the family left in 1903,
stopping to visit Nachoma Chotz's brother, Alexander Chotz (who had changed
his name upon arriving in England to Alexander Sussman). The Zeilingold
family continued on to America later that year, staying in England for 14
weeks. My great grandfather, Solomon was called rabbi in America and in
an odd little blurb i_
_n a 1949 Jewish Floridian column, there is a one line mention which states=
that "America's most distinguished heart specialist Dr. Harry Gold's fathe=
r was an orthodox rabbi." No one in my family today had ever heard this. Ad=
ditionally, on Solomon's headstone in Rotterdam, NY, it states: "Here is bu=
ried a pious and sincere man who was steeped in Torah and feared God; our f=
ather Shlomo ben Aharon, great grandson of the great Karliner rabbi, >from R=
ussia" In the United States, he was a soap manufacturer.

2) WILENSKY - The Wilensky family was headed by David Wilensky who was a mi=
ll owner in Bialystok. David had at least two children of whom I am aware: =
Barnet Wilensky who married Paulina or Pearl Rashbaum in the early 1870s an=
d had several children (see below) and eventually moved to America. Their d=
aughter, Anna Wilensky married Alexander Sisskind Chotz. Alexander and Anna=
had a daughter Clara in 1887 and then moved to England where they also had=
a son William. They eventually moved to America around 1909.

3) RASHBAUM - The Rashbaum family was headed by Nathan Rashbaum. Apparently=
he lived to be 105 years old. His daughter Paulina or Pearl (or possibly g=
randdaughter) married Barnet Wilensky. They had a number of children: Louis=
, Nathan, Joseph, and Bessie, before traveling to the United States in the =
late 1880s and having a few more children: William, Mary, and Frieda, and L=
illian. Two of the Wilensky children married the two children of Alexander =
Chotz (Sussman) upon arriving in the U.S.

Any and all information surrounding any of these families would be much app=
reciated. I can be reached at goldtenor [@] aol.com.

Thank you very much.

FW: Emigration from Lithuania to the USA In the Beginning of WWII #lithuania

Salinger Ralph
 

Dear Litvaks.
Can anybody help this teacher about this fascinating subject ?

First letter - Greetings I guide my 12th graders at a Jewish school
in Manhattan to write the roots of their families.

Two students mentioned that for the purpose of emigration, their
Jewish grandparents who were originally German citizens and lived in
Lithuania at the beginning of the war were married in government but
not Jewish marriages in order to allow the fictitious couple to emigrate.

Do you know about this phenomenon? What law is behind it? How did the
fictitious marriage help the emigration of Jews of Lithuanian origin?

Second letter -

It seems according to the personal accounts and my own research that
the Germans and Soviets reached an agreement regarding the Volksdeutche -
people of German origin living in territories under the Soviet Union.
According to the agreement those Germans were repatriated to German
territories. I find it hard to believe that the Jews of German origin
were included in the agreement, and yet the personal accounts are of
German yeshiva students who were able to leave Soviet occupied Lithuania
and married local Jewish girls ciivilly to allow them to join. The other
option could have been that the Ger=
man quotas for immigration to the USA were not filled, and therefore being =
married to a German citizen enabled the non-German girl to immigrate.
I am not sure if either of the above options can explain the phenomenon of =
fictitious marriages.
I would appreciate it if your could post the question and keep me posted wi=
th an answer.

Thank you
Chani

Please reply either to me at salinger@kfar-ruppin.org.il or to Chani Gotlie=

Many thanks,
Ralph

Also if you are thinking of presenting at the conference, we can talk about it, and that would be
great to know.

We definitely will participate in Share Fair, will have our regular Bessarabia SIG Meeting, hope

Depending on how many people even thinking to come,  we can plan our participation at the

research?
